Like its predecessor, the Canon EOS M2, the camera uses the Canon EF-M lens mount. However, the EOS M3 adds a number of new features, including a contoured grip, tilting LCD touchscreen, built-in pop-up flash and dedicated mode dial.[1][2][3] Internally, the EOS M3 sports a DIGIC 6 image processor, 24.2 megapixel APS-C sensor, Hybrid CMOS AF III 49-point autofocus system, and integrated Wi-Fi and NFC enabling control of the camera via a smartphone app.[1][2]

The camera supports optional accessories including the Canon Speedlite line of external flashes and the EVF-DC1 external electronic viewfinder.[2][3]


The EOS M3 became available in Europe and Asia in April 2015.[1] The original EOS M3 announcement indicated that the camera would only be available in Europe and Asia.[1]

On August 27, 2015, Canon announced plans to make the camera available in the United States as of October 2015.[4] At its U.S. launch in October 2015, the EOS M3 was available at $679.99 for the body only, or $799.99 for a kit including the EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens.[4]
